Movie Talk: DVD Review, Two by Michael Powell

We've discussed Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger many times on Movie Talk so it is a delight to announce that two of Powells' most difficult-to-see films have finally made their way onto DVD.

I just found about the blog function here.  I'll try to start keeping copies of the playist and posting them, although the best laid plans of mice and men, historically,  often go array.  If you have any questions about the show, please submit them and I'l do my best to answer.  Thanks for listening (and reading). Best, Wade
